Will you be my Valentine? These cards belonged to the Johnston family, residents of North Monaghan, Peterborough. This Valentine is inscribed with the words “Hoping you will accept the heart of a cheerful giver” and ends with the simple sign off “To Esma, From Home”. This is a seemingly small gesture of love that represents what this family chose to cherish for a lifetime.
